    Class Description - Contemporary

    The FoCo Technique class requires sophisticated understanding of dance technique and demands strong physical and mental stamina. The standard class is 90 min and it starts with an active follow-along sequence including Activating, Rooting and Mapping. In each of these sections, students are led by the instructor to develop awareness in muscular structure and response in order to achieve precision and control, identify and embody rhythmic pattern, dynamic change and intricate transitions, form strong interaction and connection with gravity and generate heat in the body to prepare for the phrase work. In the second part of the class a spontaneous phrase work will be created and taught in detail. Through learning the movement sequence, students will experience the coaching style and learn the quality of the movement. By the end of each class, the phrase work will be performed in smaller groups. It is your time to fully embody the combination, apply the instructions and enjoy the dance.
